In 2016, one of the oldest Danube-bridges of Budapest, the Liberty Bridge became car-free due to an infrastructural development in the neighbourhood. Citizens, mostly millennials immediately put the road and tram tracks to creative use, and re-imagined the historic place. The construction turned into street furniture, hosting picnics, grill-parties, yoga classes.
The curators choose this episode to tackle fundamental issues of urban development: What does a free public space represent today? How can a bridge or any built structure act as a medium of freedom? How can we change our own identity by transforming our city?
